"What a shame that they signed Yoenis Cepedes, what a damn shame that that player is on their team" - Andy Martino
It's not often that an athlete goes out of their way to bring attention to their doubters. To use these statements from the media as motivation is totally a move I can get behind.
It's impossible to completely turn yourself off. Even the guys who stay away from social media can't entirely isolate themselves from the radio, tv, or glancing at the back pages.
Players officially start reporting to camp next week, but as usual a lot of them head down a bit early. Especially guys like Yo who need the extra work. It doesn't hurt that he lives fairly close as well.
Will Yoenis Cespedes be in the Mets opening day lineup?— The 7 Line (@The7Line) January 20, 2020
The term PMA is something I learned about from a band called Bad Brains. Positive Mental Attitude goes a long way in all aspects of life, and I try my best to see the good side in most situations.
Whether Yoenis calls it PMA or not, he's got it.
Tailgate with us on Saturday September 16th at Citi Field! Kick the night off with us in the Marina Lot! The Mets take on the Reds at 7:10pm so we expect fans to start showing up around 3pm. If you can't swing that early, just get there when ya get there.
